Baby Duck


I just finished this little duckling this morning. It was quite a chore to get her to balance after I added his final layer of wool. I then realized that I added more wool to his chest and unbalanced her.Her eBay starts Sunday at 6:45 PM PST.  This little fuzzy one is yet to be named. Any suggestions would be welcome.

You are so talented. This duckling is just precious! What a cutie! Is it a he or she? I think you referred to it as both.

Sweet face! How about Edie (E=Easter D=Duck)...Edie!

This is so very well-done... as usual, of course. No surprise it was difficult to get the balance right. By the way, feet and beak are amazingly realistic.

And its name... hmmmm, I would go for "The pretty duckling", we all know the fairytale of "The ugly duckling" so it might be time for a real duckling which is amazingly pretty... ;O)

Wishing you a great success for the auction and a wonderful weekend!

So sweet!! He's looking back for his friends! Matty the Duck!

I think "Quiril" would be a sweet name for the little duckling. :-)

Robin, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this little cracker, and I do admire your use of the poly clay (?!) I'm all fingers and thumbs when it comes to using that stuff, lol!

Thanks everyone! Sometimes names come easily and other times it's hard to even figure out the gender. This one is one of those.
Edie is a cute name as are Matty & Quiril. Lol @ "Pretty Duck" I'm kind of thinking of Jemima, after Jemima, Puddle Duck.

Oh what a cutie. So real looking, makes me think of spring and we have 6" of snow here. I had a duck when I was two, he was forever chasing after me and our dog was always chasing after him. We were quite a noisy set of babies. I would call him/her Lovey.
Have a great weekend.

Thsnks, Donna :0) Lol, at your ducky & pup. I used to get chased by my sister's nasty rooster, named Cheepie. It was hard to ever believe that he was ever a cute little Easter chick. I don't think I'd like all that snow. I'm certainly happy I live in California!

The little ducky is adorable, your work is amazing! I think Jemima is a great name for her (and not just because it was my great-grandmother's name, lol).
